"Freedom is not Free"|
I am honored to create memorials for our WWII, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.
In May 2017 I completed a 4 year project creating virtual cemeteries for all American Ground Forces casualties during WWII (with the exception of the 9th Armored Division, no casualty roster seems to be in existence):
65 Infantry Divisions (65/65 completed)
16 Armored Divisions (15/16 completed)
4 Airborne Divisions (4/4 completed)
1 Cavalry Division (1/1 completed)
1 Mountain Division (1/1 completed)
6 Marine Divisions (6/6 completed)
The Cost of Freedom:

WW2 US Army Battle Deaths: 291,557
WW2 US Marine Corps Battle Deaths: 19,733
US Navy Battle Deaths: 36,950
Korean War US Army Battle Casualties: 29,856
Korean War US Marine Corps Battle Casualties: 4,509
Korean War US Navy Battle Casualties: 657
Korean War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 4,509
Vietnam War US Army Battle Casualties: 38,224
Vietnam War US Marine Corps Battle Casualties: 14,844

Vietnam War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 2,586
Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz:
"They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side...To them, we have a solemn obligation — the obligation to ensure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."
In 2013 I completed a five year project traveling to Hawaii annually from the mainland to photograph headstones for all of our WW2 dead at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. I have added over 10,000 photos to memorials at the cemetery. Prior to 2008, few of the memorials had a headstone photo.

You posted a picture of the Purple Heart medal awarded to Wilson Hilton who was killed aboard the USS Arizona on 12/7/41. Could you tell me where this medal is located? I am researching this sailor for a local town project. I hope to hear from you soon.

Where is the best place to search to find a grave of a KIA soldier in France in 1918. I have his service record #3765765 - Ben Hemple KIA 11/10/1918. I am looking for the cemetery where he is buried.

Thanks Jeff. I am finally getting to the Veteran's Section in Maplewood Cemetery in Wilson, NC. I will be adding lots more headstone photos and memorials for veterans.

I started to grieve for him and his family when I saw he was killed in action during WWII.

|JC||Re: Memorial Names|
Thank you for your suggestion for entering the names on my memorials. I follow what findagrave says in the help section (First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.) (Nickname - A familiar name of the deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes. A nickname is different from the real name (first or middle).
